We loved this diner! The atmosphere was so fun and it was neat to sit on the 2nd floor and look out at the ocean. The hamburgers and fries were so yummy and everyone loved the shakes they ordered. The portion sizes are huge and the shakes come with almost another shake on the side that we were guessing was... More

Awesome place, decor and view. The food was good, well-cooked and I'm not so into "American Diner's" but that was really nice. The staff was kind as well.

Whenever I visit the states I always like to eat at a traditional diner at least once. As a fan of the 50's era this diner was absolutely perfect for me. I had pancakes for breakfast, they were absolutely huge & I couldn't finish them! We visited again for milkshakes & they were amazing, I can highly recommend the m&m... More

We love going to Ruby's Diner whenever we are in the area. Everything is just what you'd hope it to be from a 50's diner theme - and you can't beat the view!

Had breakfast here two days running. A traditional restaurant that serves up a good breakfast and a nice choice too. Set at the end of the pier you get good views as well. Would recommend a visit.

A really nice eatery at the end of the Pier. Just like an old Diner. The wait staff was dressed old school and very nice! They had a man walking around making balloon animals for the kids. We had burgers and sandwiches. Very good.

Unique location at the end of the boardwalk, it was an old school diner from the 60s. Food was average but the friendly and sincere service and scenic vistas more than made up for it. Try to secure a table at a booth to be next to the windows.

Burgers, turkey burgers, salads, and sandwiches served in a bright, friendly atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Bit of a wait on weekends or right at dinner time, but worth it. Once you're seated, service is prompt and food served not too long after you order it.
